Data from: Colonizing the wild west: low diversity of complete mitochondrial genomes in western North Pacific killer whales suggests a founder effect

In the North Pacific, fish-eating R-type “resident” and mammal-eating T-type “transient” killer whales do not interbreed and differ in ecology and behavior. Full-length mitochondrial genomes (about 16.4 kbp) were sequenced and assembled for 12 R-type and 14 T-type killer whale samples from different areas of the western North Pacific. All R-type individuals had the same haplotype, previously described for R-type killer whales from both eastern and western North Pacific. However, haplotype diversity of R-type killer...

Data from: Delimiting species of marine gastropods (Turridae, Conoidea) using RAD-sequencing in an integrative taxonomy framework

Species delimitation in poorly-known and diverse taxa is usually performed based on monolocus, DNA barcoding-like approaches, while multilocus data are often used to test alternative species hypotheses in well-studied groups. We combined both approaches to delimit species in the Xenuroturris / Iotyrris complex, a group of venomous marine gastropods from the Indo-Pacific. First, COI sequences were analyzed using three methods of species delimitation, ABGD, PTP and GMYC to propose primary species hypotheses (PSH). Second, RAD-seq...
